concert feel

Love the audio and the concert feel in an open area. You can have a small picnic on the grass on the ground before a show or on your seats. Very family friendly!

This is the 3rd year in a row that I have visited the Hollywood Bowl on 4th of July. The orchestra plays patriotic songs and pays homage to our people in the military. After the main attraction, there is a fantastic fireworks display accompanied by John Phillip Sousa March music. It is breathtaking.

Spectacular view of the city. Downtown LA to the southeast, Hollywood and the Hollywood Bowl to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest and the iconic Hollywood sign to the northwest.

It was an overcast day when we visited - actually it rained heavily later in the day - what drought!?!? It was an interesting enough drive up to the lookout, aside from the tour drivers who park randomly the parking was easy (and free) and the view from the lookout is great.

This is where all the tourist busses stops for an overlook over Hollywood, I still go here from time to time, this being one of the best spots to view the city. recommended for a short stop and a few photos.

We have been to the Bowl 4 or 5 times now and it is still a wonderful place to see a concert !! We went to the Playboy Jazz Festival (our 3rd time) and cant wait for next year!! The Jazz Festival is unique in that you can bring in any food or drinks you want. Most people willingly share... More

I love going to the Hollywood Bowl for concerts. Parking is terrible, but if you use the shuttles or bus service options, it is a piece of cake. There is nothing better than sitting listening and watching your favorite artists live, in this gorgeous bowl and picnicking too.
